Mammal’s Merry Memories: Blue Öyster Cult – Lips in the Hills (1980)
The band started way back when, in 1967, as Soft White Underbelly. They adopted the name Blue Öyster Cult in 1972 and went on to record 14 studio albums between that year and 2001. During those three decades they sometimes performed as Soft White Underbelly at small gigs.
Since their career spanned so many years and so many albums, fans don’t agree on which was their best album. No doubt many would disagree with my selection of Cultosaurus Erectus (1980) as my favourite Blue Öyster Cult LP. For the three of you who are too young to remember and haven’t followed the history of music at all, “LP” stands for “Lotsa Plastic”. This is a song from the album.
